John Muir (1902), "Everybody needs beauty... places to play and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body (mind) and soul (spirit) alike." Muir also wrote, "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings."
At 10:10AM I decided to go for a walk and left a note for Laura. "Walked to park. Back soon. If not, I am hopelessly lost." Took camera and got beautiful pictures of strange birds and unknown trees. I walked as Thoreau would walk. I was slow, deliberate, thoughtful, observant. I even walked backwards at times, to see something in a new way. In my opinion I was a "sauntieure". Cesare Pavese, "We do not remember days, we remember moments."
A note to John Muir: "Dear John, they say you did not think well of the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. That, old friend, is a grievous flaw upon your otherwise sterling character. However, I do not count you among the fools. Sir, I will be generous and allow you this single fault for every great wo/man must have one. Sincerely, Anne."

  1. I've read your posts back to February 3 and can't believe that so much time has passed since I last reveled in them. Thanks for being so faithful!

    We're back from DC and you're likely in France! I look forward to your posts from there. Hope you are able to catch up with Carla.

    Be well and best regards to everyone!
